Koshland Young Leader Awards
By recognizing the next generation of leaders in our community with these awards, we hope to encourage these young people to continue on their path to leadership.
The Koshland Young Leader Awards recognize the next generation of leadership in our community. Established by Dr. Daniel Koshland, Jr., this scholarship program provides financial assistance to college-bound San Francisco public high school students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. Koshland Young Leaders are strongly motivated to achieve despite facing multiple challenges, such as economic and family responsibilities. They embrace a commitment to strengthening their families and communities. With the Koshland Young Leader Awards we applaud and support their dedication to succeed academically and to pursue their career goals.
Each year, we select up to eight San Francisco public high school juniors to receive a two-year award of $7,000, to be used for education-related expenses such as academic test fees, computers, books, and supplies for classes.
The application period for 2014 is closed. Please check back in December 2014 for details on the next round of applications.
